Worship Pastor. Carlisle Brethren in Christ Church (Carlisle PA) is seeking a pastor to take leadership of its traditional/blended worship services. The role includes planning and leading worship for the two services that meet in the sanctuary. Currently both services are identical in terms of music and have a combined attendance of 250-300 people. However, in September we plan to relaunch the second service to be a new service that will be much more blended in style and will incorporate more aspects of contemporary music. The goal is to see these services grow in impact and effectiveness. The church also has two contemporary services that meet in the auditorium with a combined attendance of all four services (including children) of about 1200 people.
The ideal candidate will have the ability to plan and instrumentally and vocally lead traditional and blended worship services, have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, have gifts and experience in leadership and administration, be able to work comfortably with all types of people, be able to recruit, motivate, and train volunteers, and be a strong contributing member of a pastoral team. More information about the Brethren in Christ denomination can be found at the denominational website (www.bic-church.org) and candidates should pay special attention to the articles of faith and doctrine (http://www.bic-church.org/about/articlesoffaith.asp) and the core values (http://www.bic-church.org/about/values/default.asp). Information about our local congregation can be found on the church website (www.carlislebic.org). The position includes a competitive salary and health and retirement benefits. Resumes should include your personal faith journey, education and experience and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
